If you put 4.11 gears in that car with that engine it will be like a bee on its back.
I use a TKO 600 5 speed.Its strong and has a 2.78 first gear. I dont like the way it shifts from second to third,not a big issue for me as I dont drag race

remember 2,000 rpm at 60 mph and my duration is 256/264,and I accelerate smoothly and easily from there even in 5th
What size tire you runnin??? After I put the motor in I will drive It with the stock gears. I didn't want to change gear unless I really had to
